OPI Brazil Collection Spring/Summer 2014


******** COME CHECK OUT MY BLOG SALE********

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been patiently waiting to get my hands on the OPI Brazil Collection ever since I started seeing promo pictures and random swatches online. When the box of polish joy showed up, I was bursting with excitement when I realized this collection is mostly cremes. Don’t gorgeous cremes make you ridiculously happy? Am I the only one whose mouth waters just looking a beautiful and buttery cremes? Ok, I guess I’m just weird, but it’s the truth.This 12 piece collection also includes a collection of mini Liquid Sands, Beach Sandies, that really are like the cherry on top of this luscious grouping. Let’s start by taking a look at the 4 Beach Sandies.

These 4 textured polishes all apply beautifully. They all need two coats for full opacity and dry lightning fast. If you are not a lover of textured polishes because of the rough feeling, these are surprisingly smooth. Obviously they still have a textured feeling, but they feel very fine and definitely not chunky at all. These are super shimmery and just look fantastic out in sunlight. You know what my beef with these is? They only come in mini-size!!! WHAAAAAAAAATTTT???? I would kill for a full size of these–especially that blue–so I’m feeling kinda sad about that. Now let’s move on to the main collection so get ready for some awesomeness.

I didn’t get into describing each polish individually because the formula on all of them is nearly identical: they are luscious cremes, highly pigmented, smooth, buttery and glossy. Application on all of them was flawless. and they were all perfect with two coats. In fact, many of these could be one coaters if you’re careful with your application. The most surprising polish was the yellow as this too, is almost a one-coater!!! I found the variety of brights and neutrals in one collection pretty refreshing. I am so happy with this collection and loved every single polish. What do you think of this collection? Is it what you were expecting?

  1. UGH I feel just like you about cremes. They have my heart and make my mouth water. I’m getting all of them! I’m still not sold on the beach sandies. The minis mess up my whole collection. Plus they don’t have as much sparkle in them as I usually like. Oh decisions decisions!

    1. I hear you about the minis. I wish they had released them in full size too. The blue one is so gorgeous!!! You will not be disappointed with the cremes–they are pretty spectacular.

  2. This is such a great collection – I love cremes so much! The only LS I’d want is the blue – that looks amazing! Though I’m interested to see how Samba-dy Loves Purple compares to OPI My Current Crush. I think must-haves for me are Man-go, Bikini Zone, Bossa Nova, and Cope-acabana. Now I must see if my beauty supply store has them in yet!

      1. I know haha, it’s such an evil word! I think my bank account would hate me if I bought them all, but I don’t think I’ll be able to resist getting at least a few!

  3. ARRGGHHHH! I must have at least five of those polishes! Holy crap! See, I have a creme polish addiction.

    ‘Hello, my name is Elizabeth and I love creme nail polish.’

    I love the pink and blue cremes, which I say about nearly every collection I see. But I am dying! When will these be available to purchase?

    1. LOL…it’s a sickness that I fully embrace. They really hit it out of the park with this collection. They should be available for purchase on 2/5 so two more days!

    1. I was excited the way I’m always excited about new collections, but I wasn’t expecting all of these polishes to be so amazing. Don’t you love it when collections surprise you in a good way?

  4. Hi,
    These all look fabulous on you! I look forward to the new collections to signal the change in seasons-plus I get bored very quickly with the same colors. Some of these colors look like ones I would wear in the Fall- but it won’t stop me from getting them now. There are 3 that look like colors that I just bought from another brand-also won’t stop me! You are so patient to keep repeating the release date, am I the only one that actually reads your post ; )

    1. Thank you! You know what? I know that sometimes I get so excited I forget to read the rest of the post so I get that people miss the release date. hehehe

      You’re right…there are some gorgeous Fall appropriate colors but, like you, I will rock them NOW. 🙂

  5. Great swatches 😀 I think i need about half of them, especially those orange/coral ones are just wonderful! May I ask if Amazon/amazoff is a stainer? I remember reading somewhere that it stains pretty badly…

    1. Thank you! Amazon…Amazoff stained slightly but it wasn’t as bad as other pigmented teals. The staining came off easily when I used just soap and a nail brush, and it didn’t stain my skin.

  6. These are gorgeous and you cuticles are flawless BTW. I love the yellow especially, but it’s hard to pick a good one! I remember you watched Nubar Resort Yellow awhile back; is this OPI yellow similar in shade and formula? I’m trying to decide between the two.

    1. I think that the OPI yellow is a little less bright and the formula is a little more creamy. If I had to choose between the two, I would go with the OPI but they are really close in quality.

  7. Don’t Bossa-Nova Me Around looks to me like it could be the next My Vampire is Buff. More to the pink side than the yellow side, obviously. Maybe not QUITE as light, but I’d still consider that an off-white rather than a light pink. But I get the feeling it’s going to become VERY popular with nail artists as a base color.

  8. Oh wow! I love this collection! I’m more of a Fall/Winter collection fan but these are amazing. I gotta see that shimmer in person 🙂 I think I need almost all of them.

  9. I love a lot of these including all of the sandies. Your swatches and photos are simply perfect. Thank you for all of your hard work… the effort certainly shows. Thank you also for including the names in the photos for pinning sake, makes it much easier!

    1. Yay! I’m glad you like the name of the polish on the picture. I’ve been wondering if people are meh about it. It’s extra work, but I like how it looks and definitely makes it easier to identify especially on pinterest.

  10. I love this whole collection, especially the peachy coral creams and the beach sandies! I may need backups of You’re So Flippy Floppy and Toucan Do It If You Try! Btw, I used to consider them a fav, but China Glaze really needs to work on their formulas, especially with OPI and Essie knocking it out of the park lately as far as flawless creams go.

  11. These swatches sent me over the edge! They are so clean and perfect. Best I’ve seen to date! Can’t wait to pick mine up tomorrow ahhhh!

  12. Girl! You didn’t mention your favourites. That’s important for us indecisive nail junkies lol. I originally thought I just wanted Amazon… and Suzi’s Man-go.. but these swatches have me reconsidering. I am loving the look of Toucan and L.L.Carnaval! Beautiful swatches as always!

    1. lol…is all of them enough? haha Seriously, though. I love this entire collection except for maybe the shimmery duo-chrome one. I could do without that one but the rest are soooo me.

  13. I’m absolutely loving this collection! Cremes are my favorite, & all of these colors look great with your skin tone. My debit card will be screaming at me. Lol

  14. Such a pretty collection with a good range of colors. I even like the sands. Need to stop by Ulta or Sally’s to get a few colors.

  15. I love the blue sandy on you the most. 🙂 I am also kind of irked by the mini set thing, but, I guess that’s how it going to go for this collection!
    Man-go will look awful on me *cries*. No can do shades of Cheeto orange, despite how much I want to.
    I think my favorite is Amazon. I’ve been trying to avoid it, but now I’ve been faced with your swatches and just…I don’t think I can, haha. I also like Copacabana just because it is a good yellow…I mean, how can I pass down a good yellow? I think I also like Carnival (I like bright, salmon-y shades), and I oddly kind of like Bossa Nova…I agree with Shivers that it kind of reminds me of My Vampire is Buff, which I love.
    I was planning to avoid this collection…which will I cave on? Hahaha.

  16. Wow, your pics of Amazon….Amazoff look really blue. Other bloggers pics look much more green/teal. I have it and it does look more green than blue. Gorgeous pics though.
